    What is the roadmap for replacement of the AKAI MINI for Quickshow?

    I have been using mine for 2 years and working great with QuickShow - however the device has recently failed and I am no longer able to source a replacement - they are discontinued by the manufacturer.

    Please advise which supported hardware is supported by Pangolin or has all "out of box" support been dropped going forward for QuickShow?

    YES - (1) I am aware that the paid software in Beyond supports 40 MKII - I should also note that MKII is also discontinued by manufacturer and (2) it's possible to program your own device.

    Hey Brett, out of interest how did your apc mini die? I ask because I had issues with my 40mk2 and it turned out that all I had to do was open it and re-plug a couple of ribbon cable edge connectors. I've not been inside a mini though. Also BOME midi translator can be used to map anything into QS - well, anything to anything really ;)

    I suppose I'll have to be more gentle with my mk2 from now on!
